2ND ANNUAL HAUNTED HOUSE

From the Issue: 
October 2011
Once again the Fitzwilliam Historical Society will sponsor a Haunted House to take place within the historic Amos J. Blake House Museum, Rt 119, on the Common in Fitzwilliam NH. This 1837 structure is an ideal setting for an entertaining visit and tour to take place over the three Friday and Saturday evenings leading up to Halloween. Times have expanded over last year’s event due to the incredible response! Open hours are 7:00-10:00 pm; dates are Oct. 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 and 29. That’s six nights of spooky, bone chilling fun! Try not to scream too loud, you’ll wake the dead in the backyard cemetery!

    This event is non-strenuous and completely new and unique this year with frightfully appropriate period costumes, decorations, and gripping storyline to enhance your visit. Also new this year will be an expanded and interactive graveyard walk on the property, sure to make more than one visitor race away in fear! This fund-raising event is being expertly handled by Rick Hoyt & Valerie Coates, your hosts for the evening.
